Workers Compensation for Foot Injuries
There were 6,583 foot-related workers’ comp claims in Pennsylvania in 2017. That’s thousands of people who, just like you, dealt with pain, decreased mobility, and much more. They deserve compensation, and so do you.
Foot injuries are one of the most common results of workplace accidents, particularly for workers who spend most of the workday standing or being active. These injuries are generally compensable if you were hurt on-the-job. You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who caused the accident that resulted in your injury.
If you have been denied benefits or if your benefits have been altered, consult an experienced workers’ compensation attorney immediately. At Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo, we fight to protect the rights of injured workers by earning them the compensation that they rightfully deserve. Whether your injury seems “minor” or is as serious as an amputated foot, please know that we’re here for you, we’re on your side, and we won’t rest until you have received the benefits you’re owed.
Your Foot Injury May Be Covered By Workers’ Compensation
Did you hurt your foot on the job or at work? You have just 120 days to file your PA workers’ compensation claim. Call Krasno Krasno & Onwudinjo for a free consultation at 800-952-9640. You won’t pay any legal fees unless we win.
Injuries That Affect Your Mobility On The Job
Whether you have suffered a broken foot, a sprain or strain, a crush injury, or any other foot injury, we understand the hardships you have been forced to endure. It is difficult to change duties at work while you are coping with injury, stress, and other hardships. You may be forced to miss work due to your injury, and that leads you and your family to suffer financially.
After you are hurt at work, it is important to know that you are not limited to seeing the doctor your employer suggests. Your workers’ compensation attorney can refer you to a qualified, unbiased physician who can give you a fair and adequate examination.
Working With Experts To Help Injured Workers
Our lawyers work with medical, vocational, psychiatric, and economic experts to help our clients recover and establish the full value of their workers’ compensation claim. We counsel and represent injured workers with all types of foot and ankle injury claims sustained in a variety of employment situations, including:
- Warehouse and manufacturing accidents
- Auto repair
- The hospitality industry
- Utility and industrial work
- Shipping and trucking
- Nursing and medical work
- Office work
- Any other occupation
Foot injuries sustained while on-the-job can occur gradually or occur immediately following an accident. Often, workers may downplay the extent of their injuries or try to “tough it out,” but it is important to seek medical attention if you are experiencing any pain.
Remember, your workers’ comp claim must be filed within 120 days of the date of the injury. Don’t delay, otherwise, you may be unable to seek recovery.
